OMY - Didn't see it coming

What a turn of events. I was in the process of changing my Fed withholding exemptions to 14 to capture my mandatory 401k withdrawal when I got the call from my boss. He was pleased to let me know that the concerns I expressed at my annual review last year were addressed. Even though I felt I was thrown under the bus, he did address my extensive travel problem. Less hours and travel doing a job I could do with one arm tied behind my back I agreed that I am on board. We'll see how it works out. Anyway, one really bad day and I'm history - and I really mean it.

Not sure if you're happy about OMY or just accepting it. Hopefully you can sock away enough extra $$$ to make it worthwhile.

Ouch. You're both right. The first thing I'm going to do is take a long vacation in a couple weeks to mull it over.
